Virtual Private Network (VPN)


Target Groups


Members of Staff



With the VPN, the IT Center offers users the possibility of secure, encrypted access from outside to the RWTH network or its parts. Depending on the user group, there are different application scenarios. The circle of users includes all students and employees of RWTH Aachen University.

When the application is started, a strongly encrypted tunnel connection to the RWTH network is established. The user is now assigned an IP address of RWTH Aachen University for the duration of the connection. This gives the user access to protected internal RWTH resources, such as hardware and software portals.
